Okay so I was reading the diagnostic criteria on bipolar and now I'm confused on where I fall. A manic
episode needs to last a week unless in hospital, depression
said 2. I always described my manic episodes as lasting anywhere from a few days to a couple weeks but after talking to my fiancee she says they last a few days and rarely more than a week. Since being on lithium my deppresive episodes have gotten shorter,a few days to a week, occasionally more. I'm wondering where that leaves me.
